December Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring packaging  projects. What fun!  I love packaging projects!  Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandy Ward's blog. She had a fabulous project!

As much as I love the holidays, I decided to step away and use the Incredible Like You stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog, as well as several products from Sale-a-bration.

Here's a look at my decorated pillow box.

The Grapefruit Grove foil band, the butterflies, and the beautiful Highland Heather Organdy Ribbon are all from Sale-a-bration!  I know you are going to love the Sale-a-bration catalog offerings this year!  The butterflies were snipped from a sheet of paper from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper Pack.  I really like the fresh, spring-y look of this box!

And, since the holidays are really right around the corner, I also have a quick holiday project for you.  It's perfect for stockings, co-workers, or holiday dinner gifts!  And they're great for a last minute addition!

Aren't they cute?  Simply take a piece of designer series paper 1 inch x 3 inches and wrap it around each nugget.  I use a little Tombow to hold them in place.  I used the 2" x 8"  Cellophane Bags to hold the nuggets and cut them down to just a little longer than the number of wrapped nuggets.  I tied a piece of twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine around the bag and finished off my project with a tag from the Tags & Tidings Bundle.

Please add a comment and let me know what you liked about my design. Thanks for hopping with us. Now click on the next image to zoom to Sue Boerner's blog to see what fun ideas she designed.

All the supplies used in my design can be ordered through my online store.  For the first project, the supplies are not available until after January 2.  Sinply click any of the product images below to be taken directly to my online store! If you don't already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would be happy to have you join my Coast to Coast Stampers team.
